The art of scrapbooking our most precious family photos and memories has become increasingly popular in recent years. As the popularity of scrapbooking grows, so too is the practice of making your own cards and gift wrap. The art of adding a ‘personal touch’ to a gift is more important than ever before, and it is something that Mum would truly cherish. Plus, making your own cards and gift wrap is a great activity to do with the kids. For Mother’s Day gifts, House & Garden Store Manager, Jeanette Figueroa, recommends pinks, mauves and floral patterns. “Then finish off with a statement bow in matching colours,” Jeanette said. Brook Nextra News and Dollars & Sense have all papers, ribbons and other decorative materials you need as you go about your craft.

Serves 4 1 Heat up your barbecue flatplate, if you‘re going to use it. Beat the eggs with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and a pinch of sea salt. Soak each piece of bread in the egg for about 30 seconds so that it goes a bit soggy. 2 Drain off the excess egg and place the bread on an oiled barbecue flatplate or in a frying pan. Cook until golden on one side, then flip over and cook until golden on the other side. 3 Cut the French toast in half and drizzle with the extra maple syrup.

CHANGE OF HEART BY JODI PICOULT This latest release is Jodi Picoult’s most thought -provoking novel so far. Shay Bourne - New Hampshire’s first death row prisoner in 69 years – has only one last request: to donate his heart post-execution to the sister of his victim, who is looking for a transplant. Bourne says it’s the only way he can redeem himself…but with lethal injection as his form of execution, this is medically impossible. Enter Father Michael Wright, a young local priest. Called in as Shay’s spiritual advisor, he knows redemption has nothing to do with organ donation – and plans to convince Bourne. But then Bourne begins to perform miracles at the prison and the media begins to call him a messiah.
